Attack of the Darkness (Update + Message)

Postby PopYoshi » Fri Sep 07, 2018 6:38 pm

Do you know why it seems the project isn't progressing? because making the beginning is taking more time than I thought!!

However I'm working hard on it, and the main reason why I'm taking so long isn't just because I'm lazy, I'm taking so long because I'm improving the levels and fixing bugs, not to mention that there's a pair of levels to be done (which aren't long, I mean levels like cutscenes, peach's castle, the intro, etc.)

Here you have a proof
Spoiler: show
Image
I've been doing my best to give a better experience because I don't want to give you a buggy, incomplete and bad looking demo

I also took my time to update the world 1 levels and for that reason I updated the screenshots
Spoiler: show
Image
I also updated the worldmap. Those were minor changes like terrain issues, paths and the sprite of the castle, I also made levels for the cutscenes so you don't have to be forced to watch them once you complete a certain level
Spoiler: show
Image
I'm trying my best, I'm really trying my best to bring the demo quick but I still have several things to do

I hope world 2 doesn't give me the same problems, I doubt it because when I start world 2 the beginning which is what is giving me problems, will be done, but no one knows

What really matters is that the project isn't dead, because I know there's people wishing to play the demo and see this finished

I'm loving those screenshots so far, is the Boom Boom in the 2nd screenshot in the 2nd spoiler a friendly NPC or a just a boss NPC? But the update is exciting, so hyped f9r the demo to come soon!

Is a friendly NPC, he's called Pam Pam, and will probably appear in the episode more than 1 time

The demo is coming, if everything goes well it'll probably come the next week

Would be nice if it comes the 20th of this month (it's my birthday xd)

And I think the most positive post I did was the number 100 8-)

Hello

I came just for explain several things about the state of the project

Attack of Darkness will happen but I just can't find the motivation yet
I'd love to see this finished, however, I need support over everything, and it's easy to say that since my problem with SMBX2 began I became less active in the forums, in the project and in SMBX

It's also easy for me to say that I don't feel like there's real support, but just for some people I think the contrary

But this project will happen
I just lost the motivation since my problem with SMBX2 began and I haven't recovered the motivation yet

Right now I'm just active in Whackahack since I got interested in making Pokemon romhacks
This last point is jusr for people to know where I've been

I think you have experienced a burnout , in my past , i have experienced at least 3 burnouts related to my project's development and the way to overcome them is to distract yourself with something new and interesting , you might need to spend months away doing something else than smbx until your motivation and desire comes back. Here is how much time i have spend during my 3 burnouts ,
1st burnout , around 28-th April to around 16-th August 2017 , 2nd burnout , around 20-th February (i still pushed myself to work on my project at that time but i was very very slow at development because of the burnout) to around 15-th April 2018 and the 3rd burnout was from 9-th June to 24-th August 2018. During the first 2 burnouts i tried to push myself to work on my project but i did very little progress so i decided to not touch smbx during the third burnout and it had a great effect on my motivation and now i am back working on my project again. So i think you just need some time away from SMBX and also during that time , better distract yourself with something interesting and fun.

Well, my problem began when SMBX2 didn't wanted to load anymore after I installed my new drivers, sadly that affected me because I couldn't play SMBX2 and just SMBX 1.3 so........... my motivation fell because I wanted to learn how to use Lunalua, after that I began to feel bored and I couldn't work well in my project

I think I need something else like you said

I haven't worked in Attack of the Darkness since the last month so the episode doesn't have too much changes

Wrong, I have inspiration for every world in a way or another. But I lost motivation and I can't play SMBX2 due to a problem with my computer, even if the episode is made in SMBX 1.3.0.1 I hate the fact I can't play SMBX2 episodes or use SMBX2 features (especially because I wanted to learn how to use lunalua)

At this point I wouldn't be surprised if people begins to lost interest in the episode

Still using the legacy editor? Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why. And remember, Yoshis are tools to be used and discarded.

Glad you've returned! I've been waiting for the levels that I should beta-test 1 month ago and I haven't heard from you since then. Go ahead, take your time and finish the levels. I'm waiting.
